DBHDD would like to announce the dissemination of the Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) Program Grant.
Assisted Outpatient Treatment is commonly referred to as the practice of providing court-ordered community-based mental health treatment under a civil commitment to individuals living with serious mental illness if it is determined that they may be a danger to themselves or others.
AOT is provided in collaboration between a community service board or private provider, a probate court or courts with jurisdiction in the corresponding service area, and a sheriff's office or offices with jurisdiction in the corresponding service area, which have demonstrated the ability with grant assistance to practice assisted outpatient treatment.
DBHDD is seeking applicants for the development of AOT programs throughout the State.
